  • 3 cups chopped peeled peaches (about 4 large)
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 cups beer
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1 cup prepared mustard
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground coriander

How to Make It

  1. Heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onion; cook 5 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally. Add peaches, black pepper, salt, and garlic; cook 1 minute, stirring frequently. Stir in beer and remaining ingredients, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer, uncovered, 30 minutes. Place half of mixture in a blender. Remove center piece of blender lid (to allow steam to escape); secure lid on blender. Place a clean dish towel over opening in blender lid (to prevent spills). Process until smooth. Pour pureed mixture into a medium bowl. Repeat procedure with remaining mixture.

  2. Note: Refrigerate sauce in an airtight container for up to 10 days.
